I had limited time for clear skies last night so I chose a brighter target that was directly overhead. I actually had to wait a few minutes for it to cross the meridian so I wouldnt have to flip.

Nice. Well done. Most mounts can be convinced to work on the wrong side. Often you have 1 hour or more before and after the flip, sometimes a lot more. Most likely you don't have to wait until the object crosses the meridian but can start on the "wrong" side.

Agreed, the fairly small footprint of the AT92 on risers coupled with my mount being on a pier extension gives me plenty of room. Im just OCD and want to be able to set it and forget it for at least a few hours.

Beautiful.  The AT92 has the perfect focal length for that field.  The detail is great.
